DD-214 in hand and I'm gonna party like it's 1998
God even thinking about going to boot after 30 has me cringing. Poor fella
I was in the last two-week class in 2007 and Most of the people in our group were in our thirties. We were fully aware that the program was going to be three weeks long starting with the next class- and we were quite ready to leave by the end of our two weeks. One of my classmates suggested, "Let's put it in our critiques that we don't feel prepared and that three weeks still won't be long enough. Think of the suckers that have to go through this a few years from now." Funny thing was that a few years later it was even longer and I heard rumors of a mock FOB with silly rules like wearing your body armor to the porta john.
